Just by way of opening a musical dialogue I'm going to take issue with that suggestion that its 'sweet and soothing' Dead that brings us back. I don't listen to the Dead to be soothed - I listen to be exalted by a beautiful Stella Blue, to be made ecstatic by a thunderous testosterone-driven Eleven, to be disconcerted by a sorcerous Dark Star, thrilled by a murderous Jack Straw and energised by a super-charged Scarlet/Fire.

'Sweet and soothing'? Frankly, just about the last thing I think about in relation to the Grateful Dead.

sorry to hear that.
just trying some word play, and sweet and soothing is there if you really want to find it. I know I do.

vapors - don't take me wrong. I wasn't having a go at you personally or what you take from the music - just trying to get back to talking about music generally. I like word play as well as, if not better than, your average poster. I tried to open a discussion - you blanked me. Everybody's looking for the hidden knife these days.

No sir, please. No knife here; just been searching for a proper musical link to plead my case. But back here to you sooner than that; my bad in my haste : All Hail to those keeping this place kind.

ok, my friend - your link could well be my morning reading as it's heading towards 1 am in these parts and I guess I'm not much longer for this place.
